It’s interesting, love.
I’m not sure I have ever really known what it means.

Spiritual Journey

MAI's picture

Your spiritual journey can only begin when you
give up your attachment to the melodramatic
story that you’ve been calling your life.

Detachment doesn’t mean, however, that you’re
uninvolved with the illusory world.

Detachment only means that your involvement
with the world is at such a high level that you
have no demands about what…or how…it's

Consequently, whatever happens in your life is
always 100% OK with you.

The last step, then, is to become detached from
your detachment.
